The Presidency of the United States of JBR is the highest office in the United States of JBR's government. Holders of this office serve as the head of state and government. The Presidency consists of two individuals: the President. The President is divided into two sub-titles: the Imperial President and the Regent President. The Imperial President has no more power than that of the Regent and only receives the privilege of being referred first and holding but the title prefix "Imperial". The Imperial President must be the leader of the private household (e.g., the breadwinner of the house). The Regent President holds equivalent power but is often given less duties than the Imperial. Traditionally however, when there has been a duumvirate presidency (the majority of presidents have served without an equivalent partner), the Imperial President has assumed nearly all obligations and duties while the Regent President assumed duties similar to the First Spouse of the United States. The idea of allowing a duumvirate presidency has become increasingly unpopular due to the general feeling of irrelevancy of the clause and the perceived concern that the Imperial President may overextend his/her power by using his/her spouse as a puppet. After the JBRican government was restored on June 10, 2012, propositions have been proposed to the Congress and the People's Branch seeking to abolish the possibility of a duumvirate presidency.
The President is the leader of the Executive Branch, the High Executive Committee, the entire government, and the United States of JBR Cabinet. The President is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of the United States of JBR although the Supreme Field Marshal has been tasked to carry out much of the President's militaristic duties. The President is the chief diplomat of the United States of JBR and as such, appoints all ambassadors and diplomats as well as setting the nation's diplomatic agenda and foreign policies. Similar to how a Supreme Field Marshal exists to execute the President's duties on military affairs, the Chancellor serves at the President's pleasure on diplomatic affairs. Historically, when the JBRican States was associated with the Californian Union, the President held the office of ex officio Emperor of the Californian Union. The Emperor consisted of three individuals and the JBRican Presidency (for the Imperial only; the Regent had no power at the Union level) was eligible to become Emperor of the Californian Union or its Co-Emperor in normal standards.
"Presidents" or "President"?Edit
Under the Constitution, it has mandated the reference to the officeholders of the Presidency along with the reference's usage. In the case that there is a duumvirate presidency, the two equivalent heads are not called the "Presidents" (although this and similar words are used often informally or when referring each specifically separately). Along with that, when the term "President" is used, it is treated as if it was singular (Example: It would follow this: "The President is walking towards us," instead of "The President are walking towards us." Regardless whether the specific term of "President" is plural or not, the Constitution strictly called for the duumvirate to officially be treated as a singular entity. The president will be referred as "he" or "she" depending on the gender of the Imperial President. If there is only one head in the President, then the term will be singular officially.

The President is elected every two years; it was originally a position that served for life until the People's Branch ratified the Constitution's clause regarding presidential tenure. The President can serve an unlimited number of terms, and serves each term to the fullest unless in the case of resignation, becoming to ill to work, impeached, dismissed, or death. The Vice President is the first-in-line to succeed the President even though the Vice President is third-in-power (the second-in-power is that of the Monarch). Because the President (in the case of a duumvirate) refers to two heads, if one of them dies, the other may continue. However, if one of them is impeached, both are dismissed. The entire Cabinet staff (the officials only) will also be dismissed regardless if they were affiliated in the violation or crime the President conducted. All acting Presidents serve until the remainder of the term.
The President is responsible for appointing and nominating officials into the government and some of these must be approved by the Congress and the Supreme Court. The President can also partake in Congressional meetings and may vote in it. The President may also override Congressional bills and the chief justice's word. There is however, a limit on how much votes may be used. Usually, this discourages the President from influencing legislative and judicial functions unless it is entirely crucial deemed by the President or his/her party. The President may pardon anyone and grant reprieves.
Being in a promcapablic nation, the President holds legislative and judicial powers and may create laws, treaties, bills, and handle cases. This those not mean the President replaces the existing bodies responsible for these duties however; and is primarily in charge of executive matters. It is generally frowned upon if a President frequently interferes with these areas.
Natural born or legalized citizens are eligible to take office of the President. The citizen must be 21 or older and been a resident of the United States of JBR for 10 years (this is not required until January 20, 2020, the requirement of 10 years of citizenship is void currently). Criminal history and reputation does not affect the qualifications to become candidate unless the citizen is currently in custody or serving sentence. The citizen must also not been in custody or serving a sentence within the last 2 years. For parole, 1 year is the minimum.When a full 1–2 years have passed, the citizen is eligible to take office. Citizens who were charged and/or served a sentence for the following crimes: murder, treason, bribery, violator of human rights, espionage, embezzlement, fraud, rape, molestation, or torturing, a minimum of 7 years is required before becoming President. If a married couple or two people wish to rule together, both must pass each criteria—otherwise, both will be ineligible to rule until the other has met the criteria).
A presidential administration is the government that exists under a President's reign. Typically, most presidential administrations continue from the day the President ascends to power to the President's last day. In the cases of acting presidents, the last non-acting president's administration continues until a new president formally succeeds (e.g., if a president is killed, an acting president will temporarily lead under the killed president's administration). Acting presidents generally lead power when the President is not available or dead. In the case of death, the acting president remains in power until proper elections are placed. Acting presidents are never allowed to run for Presidency while on service.
- Main article: Presidential Palace
All presidents that have ever served have lived at the Presidential Palace, a building built over the inaugural president's home in JBR City. The Palace has been destroyed or renovated various times and the current incarnation of the Palace is undergoing construction. The Palace is the president's private home during their service and is often the site of various Cabinet and foreign meetings. A house staff mans the palace twenty-four seven and the Secret Service is entitled to protect the premises and the residents at all time. The Palace is within two blocks of most major building complexes including the Capitol, the Supreme Court, the Emerald House, and the Vuong Air Force Base.
